Doctoral abstracts

[Apologies if you receive multiple copies]

Dear all

Sigir Forum (http://www.acm.org/sigir/forum/) is the tri-annual
publication of the ACM Special Interest Group on Information Retrieval
and is aimed at dissemination of best practice in Information Retrieval
and related areas.

One of the Forum's regular features are abstracts of recently published
PhD dissertations. PhD abstracts are invaluable in informing the IR
community on recent research and promoting new researchers.

If you have recently completed your doctoral studies, please consider
submitting an abstract to the Forum. Typically this would be one to two
pages in length, describing the main outcomes and contributions of your
research. Recent examples of dissertation abstracts can be found at the
Forum homepage.

Best wishes

Ian
